Did you know?…

Gum disease increases the risk of several serious medical conditions.

The mouth is an integral part of the body. Poor oral health may predispose an individual to certain diseases in other parts of the body. Bacteria found beneath the gums have been shown to be associated with numerous systemic diseases.

What are the signs of gum disease?

The most obvious sign is bleeding from the gums after tooth brushing. As the gums are inflamed and swollen, even the slightest trauma causes them to bleed.

Which medical conditions are related to gum disease?

Heart disease, diabetes, lung infections, certain cancers, rheumatoid arthritis and dementias have been linked and show a higher incidence in patients with gum disease.

How can gum disease be avoided?

Good daily tooth cleaning and regular visits to the hygienist are essential in preventing gum disease. This is certainly a case of prevention is better than cure! Patients who are suffering from medical conditions should be aware of the risks and maintain good oral health.

What to do now?

If you have noticed bleeding after brushing your teeth, contact Roseneath Dental Practice where help is at hand.
